Arctic Monkeys?!! Pshaaaw. It's all about The Fucktarded Sea Elves. Temperate Donkey is pretty good too, if you like a good snakejob. Don't ask.

It's all a fucking competition.

I really liked what the Arctic Monkeys were doing until the singer opened his mouth. That seems to be a big problem these days. Great instrumentation/horrible vocals. It's like the staple for most emo/indie rock bands.

I bet The Arctic Monkeys make a lot of people really happy. I didn't mean to dis on them. I think PB&J and Mom are doing what they like to do, and I say cheers to them. Midlake too. I bet they really enjoy what they're doing and I think most of us are probably just jealous because they're getting so much attention.

It's not all a fucking competition either.

It's not a competiton by any means, i just felt like being immature becasue my musical expierence commodified was more "in demand" than they're musical expierence commodified.

Really I wish them the best, I'm certain that they could break out of the ratrace with their music and sustain themselves creating which would be ideal for any group o' dudes.
They're just boring is all.

Yeah, no competition. Nobody "makes it" in music anymore. That's a 70's concept. No reason for jealousy. Art may not be dead, but the music industry and everything surrounding it is (or at least dying fast). Sure, things will come around again, but in a way that none of us have thought of yet. Oh... and rest assured somebody else will quickly grab the purse strings and it won't be a Lonestar-and-Beam drinker from any of your "scenes." It will be someone of priveledge whose first car at 16 was a red convertible Porsche. So, no reason to be jealous of your Converse-black-jeans-and-tee-shirt wearing brothers and sisters.

Really enjoying the new Blonde Redhead record. I've never heard them before, but "23" is good stuff.

From Merriam-Webster
Purse Strings: financial resources; also : control over these resources

As in "Congress controls the purse strings for funding the Iraq War."

Perfectly acceptable.

Band names these days are like Oligopolies in industry. There are like 2 or 3 similar band names all over the place. The Arcade Fire. The Theatre Fire. The Black Keys. The Black Angels. Man Man. Tapes N' Tapes. Cry Blood Apache. Chief Death Rage.

Does anybody think about anything anymore?

12:48 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Chief Death Rage is the name of an actual Native American Chief. I think it's a great name. They didn't just pull the shit out of thin air, they actually put some THOUGHT into it.

What the fuck is the name of your band?

Lots of animal names in the last few years - especially ones using wolf:

Wolf Parade
Wolfmother
Wolf & Cub
Wolf Eyes
Peanut Butter Wolf
Patrick Wolf (probably his real name, but still)
Peter and the Wolf
AIDS Wolf
Guitar Wolf
Wolf Colonel

And I'm sure they all put some thought into it too, but still - kinda strange. And even stranger that Dallas doesn't have it's own Wolf band yet...

I don't think it's strange at all. Wolves are fuckin' cool.

Hi. I'm in a band. We're called Lemur Eyes. We fucking WAIL.

You are right about the animal names thing though, 8:52 AM. 20% of last weeks "overall top 20" is comprised of bands with animals in the title.

Arctic Monkeys
Panda Bear
Deerhunter
Andrew Bird

What the fuck is going on here?!!

Your mom is a Goatboy.

My mom isn't a goatboy. That would probably be a plus, actually. She's a cross between a red-headed stepchild with heatrash and a Komodo Dragon. Dwell upon that and cringe.

I love her though.

I see your post and I cringe. And shake with disgust.
